I have an Austrian friend who's 27 years old and in a relationship with a Danish guy, around the same age. They live in Montreal. They are in a closeted relationship and officially present themselves as "roommates", 1950s-style, even though everyone obviously knows they're a couple. They are out neither to their gay friends (they have a few) nor their straight friends. The Austrian guy grew up in the countryside, and I don't think he's even able to discuss his homosexuality. Very strange, for guys in their 20s in 2011.
I've been to Vienna, but I haven't spent enough time in Austria to really know much about the country. How conservative are the people, and how gay-friendly/unfriendly is it? Is this an anomaly?
